Long, late 90s adjacent skirts are thing, and are we ok with this?



When I was a pre-teen in the late 90s, early 2000s, there was this store in the mall in my hometown called Picasso Moon where I sometimes tried to shop. My immediate peers shopped at places like Abercrombie & Fitch, but since I just had my sad paper route money and no transportation to the far-away giant mall that housed this mythical A&F, I had to figure how to achieve this allusive "cool" other ways.

One of these ways included Picasso Moon, where they sold those really amazing but also totally hideous skirts with colors that maybe didn't really go together and often had a floral print or some sort of weird geometric pattern. All very 90s.

I know we've been seeing more 90s-ish plaid creeping back, and other remnants of the bygone era, but I've been having some serious Never Been Kissed, Picasso Moon flashbacks lately with the skirts, like this daisy one on Cupcakes & Cashmere.

I don't know how I feel about this. On the one hand, if anybody's going to pull it off, it's the fashion blogger with the seriously amazing closet. And if she can do it, maybe I can too!(?)

On the other hand, it didn't look cute on me in middle school. Also, the length and cut of a lot of the skirts reminds me of the horrible, long black skirts I had to wear with white blouses for middle school chorus concerts. Just, no.

So are we ok with this? I don't know how to feel. Tell me, please. Like Gretchen in Mean Girls--you wouldn't buy a skirt without asking your friends if it looked good on you, would you?
